Ecso Arrests 19-year-old for Attempting to Kill Woman in Early April Gunfire

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook on Wednesday that an April shooting led to the arrest of a 19-year-old Pensacola man.

After officers found out that Darien Johnson was a suspect in a shooting on Potomac Drive on April 7, they arrested him and charged him with attempted murder, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, and resisting an officer.

The ECSO said in a post that a “female victim with a gunshot wound was found and taken to a local hospital.”

When the driver of a stolen car ran away from a traffic stop on Tuesday, Johnson was in the car with him. When the driver of the stolen car stopped the car, Johnson is said to have thrown a gun while running away.

Johnson is being held in Escambia County Jail without release at the moment.
